Strana, the split used is generally "per 500 meters". So since a 2K is 4x that long, divide your goal time by 4. That will give you the split you need. (So for 7:00 for 2K, that means 3:30 for 1K, and 1:45 for 5ooM. each second you drop on the split will drop your 2K time by 4 seconds, so a split of 1:44 would get you 6:56.)

That won't, however give you any info on strategy for doing your 2K test (unless you're exactly going to hit and hold the same split the entire time). There are other threads on strategy...

Good luck!
